I heard a quote I liked recently: “Eighty percent is perfection”. What a relief! Hearing this made me think of parents who want their children to be so good at something – so perfect – that the child ends up physically or emotionally hurt by it. On the other hand, some children seem to be born with a desire to be perfect that can drive a parent crazy. Take a look at a new book by Dr. Jill L. Adelson and Dr. Hope E. Wilson: Letting Go of Perfect .
